I have a 40" MES 2nd gen and I got this cover. I got the large size off Amazon and imho it is a few inches two small on all dimensions. It is tight to the point where it is difficult to put on and in fact the rear top corners of the MES punctured the cover in two spots.I also had to remove the handle from the MES to install.

The quality and look is great, it just doesn't fit.

I realize this is an old thread, however, I wanted to share my opinion of the cover.  Like tpalshadow mentioned, the cover I purchased would not fit either.  I was able to get the cover about 2/3 of the way on but no further, it began to tear on one of the corners of the smoker.  It may have fit if the handle was removed from the smoker, but that is not an option for me at this time.

 

I sent it back for a refund.

Looks like it fits the first gen perfect, but not the new second gen MES40

I built a cabinet for mine to get it off the ground.

This is a great quality cover but it does not fit the 2nd gen MES 40. You will need to remove the back handle and loader to work it onto the MES and then it is to small to pull to the bottom so it will leave a bunched up area of canvas at the top and still about 6" from covering bottom.

I have the second generation of the mes 40.  The dimension's of the original cover are 16 x 21.  The sec gen need 16 x 25 to go all the way down  and cover the chip loader!! I also took off the top bar!! I will take this to an upholstery shop and see if the can add a panel to the cover to allow it to fit!!

Awesome! The "official" one is paper thin and tears easily. I bought it a few years back and it sucks. Thanks for posting the URL. Just ordered it!
